Wine Grapes
This list of grape varieties includes cultivated grapes, whether used for wine, or eating as a table grape, fresh or dried (raisin, currant, sultana). The term grape variety refers to cultivars rather than actual botanical varieties according to the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants, because they are propagated by cuttings and may have unstable reproductive properties

Grenache
Grenache
Grenache
(/ɡrəˈnɑːʃ/) or Garnacha (IPA: [ɡarˈnatʃa]) is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world.[1] It ripens late, so it needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain, where the grape most likely originated. It is also grown in the Italian isle of Sardinia, the south of France, Australia, and California's San Joaquin Valley. It is generally spicy, berry-flavored and soft on the palate and produces wine with a relatively high alcohol content, but it needs careful control of yields for best results. Characteristic flavor profiles on Grenache
Grenache
include red fruit flavors (raspberry and strawberry) with a subtle, white pepper spice note

Irsai Olivér
Irsai Olivér
Irsai Olivér
is a Hungarian white table/wine variety, a cross between Pozsonyi and Pearl of Csaba made in 1930. It ripens early and has a distinctive Muscat character. Description and distribution[edit] This relatively recent Hungarian cross has rare leafage, big, loose clusters of grapes, and resistance to many vine diseases. The grapes ripen in August. As a table wine it can be compared to Pinot Grigio, but gives more fragrance, similar to Muscat. The wine has a light, green-yellow color, a fragrance also associated with tropical fruits and lemon, and a low acidity level. Irsai Oliver alone is best drunk young, but it is often improved by blending with a more structured variety. Irsai is mostly planted in Hungary, although it appears also in Moldova, Slovakia and Russia. The wine is popular in Central Europe, as it is easy-going and a true chilled summer wine especially enjoyed by women

Albaranzeuli Nero
Albaranzeuli nero is a red Italian wine grape variety that is primarily found in Sardinia. The grape is often confused with the red Sardinian grape Girò which is believed to be a parent variety of the white grape Albaranzeuli bianco. However recent DNA profiling has not established a direct link between Albaranzeuli nero and either Girò or Albaranzeuli bianco.[1]Contents1 History 2 Viticulture 3 Wine regions 4 Synonyms 5 ReferencesHistory[edit] Ampelographers use to believe that the grape was originally Spanish in origin and was introduced to the island when it was ruled by the Crown of Aragon. The hypothesis was bolstered by the grape's Spanish name and its association with Albaranzeuli Bianco which has also been theorized to have had Spanish origins.[1] Viticulture[edit] The annual growth cycle of Albaranzeuli nero is characterized by its mid-season budding and its late-season ripening

Albarossa
Albarossa is a red Italian wine grape variety that was created in the Veneto wine region in 1938 by grape breeder Giovanni Dalmasso at the Istituto Sperimentale per la Viticoltura in Conegliano. Dalmasso originally thought he created the grape from a crossing of Nebbiolo and Barbera but DNA profiling in 2009 confirmed that the "Nebbiolo" vine used wasn't Nebbiolo at all but rather a very old French wine grape variety from the Ardèche, Chatus. The confusion stemmed from a synonym of Chatus, Nebbiolo di Dronero (Nebbiolo of Dronero, a small commune in the Piedmont wine region where Nebbiolo is grown but so apparently was Chatus).[1]Contents1 Wine regions 2 Viticulture 3 Relationship to other grapes 4 Synonyms 5 ReferencesWine regions[edit] Albarossa first became a permitted variety for use in Italian winemaking in 1977 but its commercial use has not taken off. A 2000 census revealed that there is less 10 hectares (25 acres) of the variety planted throughout Italy
